    On an idea from a friend, I've been reporting all preorder sales on Facebook as scams.
    And any that advertise a confirmed order from the retailer they are getting it through, I'm reporting it to those places too.

    You’d be wasting your time. It isn’t illegal or a scam. It is just greed. It’s unethical but not illegal if that makes sense. More could be done to prevent scalping from retailers but they don’t care.

    Dunno. We'll find out. Will see what EB says about it (if).

    Mwave once upon a time acted on Ebay scalp sales that violated the rules of their raffle for the 3080 Founders edition. If they can do this, then so can other retailers.

    I'm all happy for stock to sell quick for people who get them to KEEP them or intend to gift it or whatever, but scalp sales I take a hard stance against, especially for a collector edition product that's intended to be only limited distribution.

    I think if they were serious about these consoles going to real users rather than scalpers then they could offer them for sale in different ways. In store only or to ebworld members. Microsoft could offer them to gamepass or xbl subscribers. Both are some examples I can think of. Not sure what other retailers could do. Not sure about mwave but there isn’t much any retailer is obliged to do once the sale has been completed.

    edit: And eBay or gumtree could reduce this practice if they cared to.

    Well i've been waiting almost a year after release to get one of these and it looks like i'll be waiting a lot longer. I didn't jump onboard and order early because I had the 3080 coming in and a new PC build which went will. Not to mention I was quite happy with the Xbox One X im running. But now wishing for 4k support for the new titles Im looking for a Series X.

    I've put my order in with Telstra as they gave me a discount which worked out cheaper with all access... lets see how long ill have to wait lol

    Good luck with your journey.. Hope it's not too long of a wait..
    A good mate of mine finally managed to get a preorder in for the halo console. Been waiting since last year to get his hands on a machine.
    Just seems to be the norm right now.. There seems to be a wait for anything and everything right now.

    For what it's worth, it's definitely worth it and a great console.

    I assume it's to fix some diconnextion bugs as you suggest. Though I've never had a issue and have had series x since release
